Mike Houston leaves LR to coach football in S.C.
Franklin native Mike Houston has been named the new head coach of the Citadel Bulldogs football team. The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina is located in Charleston, S.C.
The Bulldogs ended the 2013 season with a 5-7 overall record and a 4-4 record in the Southern Conference; a season that saw Head Coach Kevin Higgins resign upon its conclusion, opening the door for Houston to move into the role.
“The Citadel is a prestigious institution. It's got a strong program with great integrity and honor and I look forward to being able to continue that tradition,” he said. “I'm in the process of getting down there and jumping in. We've got winter workouts and during that we'll be recruiting staff and coaches so we can hit the ground running in the spring.”
